12:37 am
>> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- matthew morrison, from nbc's "the wiz! live," uzo aduba, music from a great big world. featuring the 8g band with brian chase. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers! [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening, i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] that is great to hear. let's get to the news. in an interview released today, donald trump says he believes in heaven and hopes to end up there one day. though i think he only likes it because it's a gated community.
12:38 am
[ laughter ] historians have come forward and said that one of donald trump's golf courses incorrectly claims to be the site of a great civil war battle. said trump, "i meant after i become president." [ laughter ] "because that's going to be mission control for me on my beautiful golf course." president obama today pardoned two turkeys, not because of thanksgiving, but because they were convicted on non-violent drug offenses. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] let me tell you, i -- and let me tell you, it has been a crazy day at the office while we tried to get a picture of that turkey with a joint in its mouth. just running around all day -- [ turkey gobble ] [ laughter ] but we got it in there and then the turkey was like, "ooh." [ laughter ] [ turkey gobble ] [ laughter ]
12:39 am
that's right, president obama today took part in the annual tradition of pardoning a turkey, and then donald trump said he saw vegetarians celebrating on the rooftops in jersey city. [ laughter ] today is considered by many to be the biggest travel day of the year with 43 million americans expected to fly this thanksgiving. in fact, it's so busy la guardia airport is considering opening a second security line. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] that's how busy it is. ufc fighter holly holm told reporters yesterday that when she met beyonce over the weekend, holly asked her what her name was. it was the first time in years beyonce felt like a member of destiny's child. [ audience ohs ] [ turkey gobble ] [ laughter ]
12:40 am
mcdonald's announced that its restaurants in japan will start selling 48-piece chicken mcnugget meals starting this december. to give you any idea how many mcnuggets that is, if you laid them all out end to end, that's a way better idea than eating them. [ laughter and applause ] a new list of america's best states to live in placed mississippi at the very bottom, behind all 49 states, as well as three more states they just made up. [ laughter ] "oh, we're behind floridork." [ laughter ] a new study found that people are more likely to be rude if they witness rudeness by someone else. the study is called the "republican presidential primary." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] and finally, firefighters in germany this week had to drag a
12:41 am
man out of a sex store that was on fire because he refused to leave his private video booth until he finished watching the porn film "throbbin' hood." [ laughter ] the plot of the movie, of course, is that he steals from the rich and really gives it to the poor. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we got a great show for you tonight! [ cheers and applause ] from the broadway hit "finding neverland," matthew morrison is in the house tonight. [ cheers and applause ] you know her from "orange is new black." she's also starring in nbc's production of "the wiz! live." uzo aduba is back on the show this evening. [ cheers and applause ] and this is very exciting for me. we have a fantastic band that is here tonight. they performed on our very first show, and they are back with us this evening. a great big world is in the house. [ cheers and applause ] very happy to have those fellows back.
12:42 am
a reminder that we are doing a show tomorrow night, a thanksgiving show. this is the second year that we've had a thanksgiving show here at "late night." once again, my parents and my brother will be the guests, the only guests on the show. [ laughter ] they were great last year and they've agreed to come back. i mean, i think they were pulling for "the tonight show," but they'll settle. [ laughter ] they thought they did well enough to get, you know, the 11:30 show, but they're happy. so i'm looking forward to that. please tune in. they are a blast, i promise. now, before we get to the rest of the show, these days slang terms are evolving so fast that sometimes it's hard to keep up. so we here at "late night" decided to give you a little primer in a segment we're calling "seth explains teen slang." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: our first slang term is "slay." some of you may have heard the term "slay" at a concert or a party.
12:43 am
so what does it mean? well it's actually used when someone is totally killing it. for example, "i went to an adele concert, and when she started singing 'hello,' i was like, 'slay, girl, slay.'" [ laughter ] that's a term you probably heard before, but there's some new terms. and these terms, these are fresh terms that are just starting to become popular. they're fresh. [ light laughter ] this one comes just in time for thanksgiving. it's "cranberry sauce," and let's see what it means. something that takes the shape of its container. [ laughter ] so let's see it in a sentence. "when jenna wears spanx, she cranberry sauce. [ laughter ] get her out and she all gravy." [ cheers and applause ] now, when you're at thanksgiving dinner tomorrow night, you can use that as an adult to sound like you understand the teens of today. moving on, it's trumping. let's see what it means.
12:44 am
when you try and get a girl to break up with you by saying more and more awful things, but she ends up liking you more for some reason. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] so let's, you know, use it in a sentence. "i told marisa that all refugees should go to hell and now she's talking about marriage. #trumping." [ laughter ] this next one -- if you use this one, the teens are gonna really think "cool cat." um -- don't say "cool cat," though. [ laughter ] up next it's the spliffsonian. let's see what it means. a house with way too much weed paraphernalia. [ cheers ] for example, "we can hit a joint, blunt, bong and bubbler because it's the spliffsonian up in this bitch." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] [ turkey gobble ] [ laughter ] moving on, it's clingman. let's see the definition. it's a wingman who won't leave when their services are no
12:45 am
longer needed. [ laughter ] for example, "eddie introduced me to his cute friend phebee at the dance, but now it's 3:00 a.m. and he's still at my apartment. #clingman." [ laughter ] "eddie, i'm good, i'm good." "you got a lot of dvds, man." "get out of here, eddie." "can i borrow some of these dvds?" "don't use dvds." [ laughter ] next it's facebook friend. let's see what it means. someone you only keep around just to hear the crazy things they say. [ laughter ] for example, "i hate to admit it, but every time ben starts talking about how the pyramids were made by joseph, i'm glad he's my facebook friend." [ laughter ] and let's see a picture of ben. there he is. [ applause ] there he is. moving on, a personal favorite of mine, big old twitties. [ laughter ]
12:46 am
big old twitties is when someone tweets too far beyond the allotted number of characters and needs several more tweets. let's see it in a sentence. "tweet 3 out of 7? it's got to be 140 characters or less, dog. why you got to whip out them big old twitties?" [ laughter and applause ] [ cheers ] very helpful. there are rules to twitter. you got to follow the rules. up next it's peyton. let's see the definition. a way to describe something that might be past its expiration. [ audience ohs ] let's see it in a sentence. you've got to get that chocolate milk out of the fridge, jeff, it's totally peytoned. [ laughter ] next it's gravy boat. let's see the definition. it means that weird friend you only see on thanksgiving. for example, i went home on thanksgiving and ran into jordan schmidt. that gravy boat was still
12:47 am
wearing his class ring. [ laughter ] moving on. miley virus. this is a term for when your preferred style of dress is that of a japanese nightmare. for example, i saw stacy wearing a giant purple wig and a skirt made out of tentacles. i think she contracted the miley virus. [ laughter ] moving on! this one i love. it's wetnap. [ light laughter ] let's see the definition. when you're so tired you fall asleep on the toilet. for example, i crammed so hard for the test last night that i had to take a 45-minute wetnap during gym class. #toiletpaperpillow. now some people will tear off the toilet paper and then fold it back and forth until they have enough room for a pillow. i just like a whole roll.
12:48 am
but hey, there is a lot of different ways to take a wetnap. let's hear our final term. it's whoopsie hazy. let's see what it means. when you accidentally get high from secondhand pot smoke. let's see it in a sentence. i was going to drop off some food at the spliffsonian and now i've been playing xbox for six hours, #whoopsiehazy. you guys, that was "seth explains teen slang." you are welcome. we'll be right back with more "late night."

12:54 am
>> seth: okay, i'm very good. i'm very good. thank you for making time because you were in the middle, obviously, of a broadway run. >> yeah. >> seth: i'm fascinated by the broadway schedule all the time, but my question is what is a broadway thanksgiving like? what is your day tomorrow? >> oh, it's great. i get to get up at 4:30 a.m. tomorrow and go do the thanksgiving day parade. >> seth: so you're doing the parade? that's very exciting. >> it's amazing. >> seth: and they gave you the 4:30 a.m. slot, because that's a very good slot. >> it's a very good slot, yeah. >> seth: people stumbling home from the night before. "hey, what's peter pan doing here?" [ laughter ] "hey, peter pan on a boat!" >> the turkeys in amsterdam are going to love it. i get up, and then we have a show tomorrow night as well. >> seth: okay, wow. so it's a full day. >> yeah. it's a strange day. it's going to be interesting. but, you know what? it's one of those things i'm going to look back on and be like, "oh, i'm so glad i got to be a part of it." when my alarm goes off at 4:30 and it's dark outside, i'm going
12:55 am
to be a little pissed off. [ laughter ] >> seth: the good news is, like, it's always dark these days. now, this is from rehearsal because obviously have to rehearse. it's different from doing the macy's parade. now, you were rehearsing at macy's in a onesie? [ laughter ] >> i was, in a devil. it was a devil onesie. >> seth: it really shows how devilish it is. >> yeah. >> seth: that's like a guy trying to convince a kid to like go jump off a bridge. that's how devilish you look there. what are you -- was it freezing? >> it was freezing, but we're a really tight cast. i love this cast so much. everyone is there. all the other broadway shows are rehearsing at the same time. and we're like, "we want to stand out and be different." so we're like, "everyone wear onesies." it was a big kind of thing. we had a great time, and everyone was laughing at us. >> seth: that's great! >> we made a statement, i feel. >> seth: now so, you went straight into rehearsing for the show from finishing "glee." you did not have much of a break at all. >> it overlapped. i was in the final two episodes of "glee" while i was rehearsing for this, also doing orchestra
12:56 am
dates on the weekends, too. >> seth: so wow so what -- did you not want a break or was it an opportunity that was too good to pass up? >> it was definitely the opportunity was there. and i knew on the heels of "glee," i definitely wanted to be back on broadway because i have done it so long before. and i wanted to make my return on broadway. this is definitely the show to do it in. i was so excited to do it, and that was the only time to do it. >> seth: that's fantastic. >> i was flying back and forth. it was exhausting. >> seth: now obviously, working on a show like "glee," you have to have an exhausting schedule as well. because you know it's obviously a single cam show, and shooting like a movie schedule, but you had done this before. what was it like coming back to this world where you were doing eight shows a week? it had been, what, seven years since you had done broadway? >> yeah, well, you know, my first broadway show i was 19 years old. i did "footloose." >> seth: wow. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: were you pro dancing or anti-dancing? [ laughter ] before we applaud. [ laughter ] let's find out where he stands on dancing. >> dancing is not a crime.
12:57 am
>> seth: okay. i got you. [ cheers ] >> no, i was's featured white boy break dancer in that show. >> seth: oh, wow. >> at 19 years old, broadway was amazing. it was all about -- it was such a party. we would go out every night, go to the bars. i'm not going to name the establishment that let a 19-year-old in there, but it happened. >> seth: can i ask real quick? because i'm actually curious about this. so that part, broadway, those bars, it's the same bars everybody goes to, right? >> yeah. >> seth: they must look the other way for a 19-year-old because they're like, "oh, he's on broadway. he's doing the show." >> it's funny you say that because those bars i frequented at 19 years old, they're not there anymore. so, i think there is probably a reason why their liquor license probably got yanked. but you know it was all about fun and hooking up and having fun, and going to the bar and everything is on ice. now i'm on ice, literally, because three times a week, i have to take ice baths. >> seth: really, just from the physical -- >> from the physicalness of the show, and i'm not 19 anymore.
12:58 am
>> seth: yeah. >> but when i started this show, it was -- i had a seven-year break since my last broadway show, and i wanted to make a statement, you know? i told the choreographer, "i want to do everything." but that was like my 25-year-old self talking. now i'm just like hurting and bruised, and i'm like, "why am i taking ice baths? i'm not a running back in the nfl. this is ridiculous." [ laughter ] >> seth: "i play j.m. barrie. this is not supposed to be --" >> "i just sing and dance for a living. what is going on here?" >> seth: but that is -- it is fantastic, and now i have -- obviously we're talking about that area in broadway, and it is such a fantastic -- there's so much energy there. and you recently posted on instagram that -- i think maybe -- well, let's show it first and then you explain what happened. >> throw some candy at the kids. [ cheers ] >> seth: so what are you doing? you're just hucking candy at
12:59 am
kids? >> i don't know. [ laughter ] i don't know what i was doing. >> seth: the next time you throw candy to kids like this, they're like -- >> they were across the street. i had to reach it. i had to reach them. >> seth: let gravity help you out a little, too. >> that was a couple nights ago and all those kids were in town. everybody is wearing red jackets because they're, like, dancing in the parade and stuff. all these people from all over the country -- >> seth: its your parade colleagues. >> i guess, but i think they were all lined up to see "hamilton." >> seth: oh, right. [ laughter ] that was a bummer, yeah. >> they were across the street. and i went out because i have this little bar at the railing and i do, like, stretches on it. i put my foot up there. [ laughter ] and i do that and then -- >> seth: and then other parts of -- that's the only part of new york where if you're stretching like that and kids can see you, it's not a crime. [ laughter ] everyone else they're like, "yeah, there's a guy doing weird stretches on his balcony. he's throwing candy at my kids." >> oh, my gosh. i know. [ laughter ] >> seth: we're sending the cops. [ cheers and applause ]
1:00 am
>> so i'm stretching, and i saw these people, and i was, like, "okay." and a couple people saw me, and you know, it goes crazy. then i came back inside, and i was like, "woah." then they started chanting, "matthew, matthew!" i was like, "oh, god." my castmates started to come up to my room and said, "what is going on outside?" and i said, "give me some candy." and we did that. >> seth: there you go. it's nice of you to give candy to anyone going to another show. i would never do that. >> no. >> seth: you have to come to my show to get candy. otherwise, i feel like i've been incentivizing people. >> i'm trying to sell tickets to our show. >> seth: that's right. they're like, "we should go see that nice guy that gave us candy." [ laughter ] tell me about -- you went to the white house with this broadway initiative. explain this, because it sounds super cool to me. >> it's really cool. last weekend kristin chenoweth and i and cicely tyson, whoopi goldberg, andrew lloyd webber, all these amazing people went there, and they had 100 kids from all over the country, high school kids, that came in.
1:01 am
and they did like a little workshops with professionals. so myself and our choreographer for "finding neverland", mia michaels, we did a workshop on dance and theater with, like, 10 of them. they all broke off into different groups. and it was so amazing, you know. i was supposed to be there to inspire all these kids, but, honestly, being a part of that stuff and being with these kids who are so enthusiastic about everything, it inspires me. it really fills my cup, you know. it's just an amazing thing. >> seth: that's awesome. [ cheers and applause ] i want to ask about this as well because i can't imagine how hard it is to start a school. but that is something else you've done. you were at a performing arts school? >> i was, yeah. i was at orange county high school of the arts back in the day. and the director, ralph o'pasik and i, we actually have been talking for a long time about -- because it was such a great model for a school. it's a charter school. we developed this thing, and now next year it's going to be california school of the arts
1:02 am
san diego. and the year after that, it's going to be california school of the arts south bay, which is just outside of l.a. so we're going to kind of do it in california for a little bit, and then see how those work, and then hopefully make it a nationwide thing. >> seth: that is really impressive. congratulations. [ cheers and applause ] even more impressive, if i did any work to start a school, i would definitely my name would be on that school. it would be, like, the seth meyers school for acting. >> i might have, like, the matthew morrison performing arts center. >> seth: there you go. inside, it's like, the matthew morrison theater. they give bowls of candy as you walk in. [ laughter ] >> absolutely. >> seth: congratulations on that, congratulations on the show. thank you so much for being here. >> thank you. >> seth: have fun tomorrow. >> thank you so much.
